It's a shame that Super Manège got scrapped. As Dreamland is / was meant to be a heritage theme park, some of these older rides could've gone there.Super Manège got scrapped, as did Super Wirbel. Can't find anything about the Genting corkscrew, but it's possible it's been scrapped as well.
According to Screamscape (posted 24/02/2020), Selva Magica in Mexico has closed 2 rides: https://www.screamscape.com/html/world_news.htm#Mexico.
This includes Tornado, a Schwarzkopf Jet Star III. What I’d like to know is if anyone knows what has / will happen to it? Is it being scrapped or sold on?
EDIT: Also, slightly older news, a few years ago, Salitre Magico, a park in Columbia, closed their Schwarzkopf Jet Star III (previously Alton Towers' Beast), also known as Tornado. Also, I'm interested in the whereabouts of the Vekoma Corkscrews that were at La Ronde, Genting and Holiday Park. Does anyone know about what's happened to these rides? Thanks everyone!
The one in Salitre had some bad structural issues, stress fractures and the like. However I belive it was taken down and stored rather than sent to the scrap yard.
On the Selva Magica one I have no idea at the moment. Have some friends down that way I'll see if they know anything.
It's really not...it was pretty bad and uncomfortable. I get that some coasters should be preserved as unique, or interesting examples of their type for posterity, but Super Manège ain't it.It's a shame that Super Manège got scrapped.

I think that setup on all trains would be the best setup for optimum visibility and re-ride-ability.In the video they've only turned the back row round - how curious.
I do like that Mack are willing to test these sorts of things though.
Or indeed as we saw with the spinning trains on Blue Fire, this could be a test for Mack to offer something like this on any new BigDippers they sell.I think that setup on all trains would be the best setup for optimum visibility and re-ride-ability.
Even if it doesn't get converted right now due to cost (if the park don't want to spend money on it) at least it looks like the option is there for the future to breathe new life into this ride in some years from now.
